Can you explain what note seasoning means?
The short definition of seasoning is history. In other words, a seasoned note is one where the borrower has been making payments for a period of time. As an Investor, it is important to take into consideration how long a note has been seasoned when you are doing a valuation of your portfolio. Keep in mind, the more seasoned a note is, the better off you are.
Record-keeping is critical when it comes to determining the seasoning of a note. Oftentimes, seller financed notes have poor records which can make it somewhat challenging when valuing a seasoned note. Record-keeping has to include the term of the note, the rate of the note and the historical payments on the note.
